New Pneusomnia Center in Toluca Lake, Calif., Will Combine Medical and Dental Expertise to Provide Comprehensive Care for Complex Airway Issues
HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo., April 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vivos Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: VVOS) (“Vivos” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on developing and commercializing innovative diagnostic and treatment modalities for patients with dentofacial abnormalities and/or mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring, announced today that Vivos’ medical integration division will open its third U.S. multidisciplinary sleep apnea clinic (known as a Pneusomnia Sleep Center) in May 2022 in Toluca Lake, Calif. The new facility will join existing Pneusomnia Centers in Del Mar and Modesto, Calif.
The Center will be a clinician-owned, Medicare-approved clinic. It will provide a comprehensive array of services that include The Vivos Method treatment for both adults and children, mandibular advancement devices, laser treatment, oral myofunctional therapy, home sleep testing and positive airway pressure (PAP) services. The Center will be led by Dr. Jonathan Greenburg, DDS, a nationally renowned expert in dental sleep medicine and faculty member at The Vivos Institute in Denver, Colo., and Dr. Michael Marsh, MD, an American Board of Internal Medicine diplomate who has practiced internal medicine for over 25 years.
“Combining sleep medicine’s various dental and medical aspects is something that the industry has not yet been able to accomplish in a scalable manner,” said Dr. Marsh. “Our Pneusomnia Center will truly be a one-stop, sleep-focused center for patients in the community to treat their airway issues. Our mission with opening this practice is to have a profound impact on the lives of patients and their families through treating OSA’s root cause once and for all.”
“Over the past 20 years, I have treated thousands of OSA patients using traditional mandibular advancement oral appliances. When I came across The Vivos Method, I immediately knew that the treatment had significant clinical and patient advantages,” added Dr. Greenburg. “Vivos’ breakthrough technology and protocols are changing the face of OSA treatment as we know it today for patients in need all over the country.”
Established in 2021, Vivos’ medical integration division assists Vivos-trained dental practices in establishing clinical collaborations with local primary care physicians; sleep specialists; ear, nose and throat doctors; cardiologists; pediatricians; pulmonologists and other healthcare providers who routinely see or treat patients with sleep and breathing disorders.
The division’s primary objective is to promote The Vivos Method to medical providers and facilitate the potential for mild to moderate OSA patients to gain access to the treatment. Each independent Pneusomnia Center is managed by Vivos under a management and development agreement, which pays Vivos a percentage of all net revenue from sleep-related services. Vivos also collects a development fee for each Pneusomnia Center prior to opening to assist in establishing operational protocols.
